Communication is the art and process of creating and sharing ideas. Effective communication depends on the richness of these ideas. Discuss. Communication is the means to any relationship whether it is friendly, business or romantic. Nobody can do without communication. From the time we wake up to the time we go to sleep we will be communicating either intentionally or unintentionally. According to C.Ramakanta Sarma, a Public Relations and Human Resources Development Trainer based at Tirupati AP, seventy–five percent of our daily time is spent through communication through writing; reading; listening; speaking and inter-debate. It is so interesting to note that for the whole universe to conform in the manner it is today, it is because of communication. Indeed, communication is the art and process of creating and sharing ideas. Humans, animals, fish and even plants alike indeed communicate and understand each other in their own style. A baby who knows only to cry and smile does communicate very well with his or her mother; an alarm rings in the morning and without saying anything we simply get up for the day. It is important to note that there is some skill and process involved for those ideas to be shared effectively. It is a learned style that we develop from birth. The richness of these skills and process can be measured well when the person we will be communicating with receives our message in the intended form. Without effective communication, the world will be in chaos. No wonder God said “Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech”(king James Version) in the book of Geneses 11 verse 7, and once those people’s speech was confounded the tower they intended to build was abandoned because men could not understand one another, hence it was named the ‘tower of babel’ meaning tower of confusion.
